redhat 8 and sshpass availability


hello -

I noticed that sshpass is not [yet?] available on rh-8 using dnf/yum.

To install, I followed these instructions

Code:
dnf --assumeyes install wget gcc gcc-c++ libgcc ;
wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/sshpass/files/latest/download -O sshpass.tar.gz  ;
tar -xvf  *.gz  ;
cd  ./sshpass*  ;
./configure    ;
make         ;
make install  ;
/usr/local/bin/sshpass -V  ; ## 1.06
any opinions on this? any thoughts on why sshpass is not available, other than the obvious security issues?

Presuming that you enabled the Epel repository, you should probably ask RedHat support.
I'm sure we'd all appreciate knowing the answer.

yes, even after I logged in. Perhaps it was because I went to ASU and not U-of-A in Tucson?
